If you’re in search of a show to fit the spooky mood of Halloween weekend, Underground Arts is the place to be tonight. T.J. Kong and the Atomic Bomb are staging their 8th annual Halloween Murdershow, and they’ll surely bring all the creep factor you’re looking for. Bonus: it’s a super-stacked lineup with Tutlie, Levee Drivers, Shy Boyz, Red 40 and the Last Groovement and OOLALA rounding out the show. The post-apocalyptic blues band released Dancing out the Door earlier this month; listen to “Black Bats” below. Find tickets and more information on the XPN Concert Calendar; tickets are also available as a bundle option with a copy of the new album.
After stunning the crowd with two sets at XPN Fest this summer, Preservation Hall Jazz Band return with a show at the Appel Center for the Performing Arts tonight. Whether you’ve seen the band before or haven’t yet been acquainted, this show is certainly worth a trip out to York. Pres Hall has been around for over 50 years and released its latest album So It Is in April. Get ready for the show by watching the energetic 6-piece band tear it up in the video below, and find tickets and more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.

Philly punk icons The Dead Milkmen will bring their own dose of Halloween spirit to the Trocadero tonight for a headlining show following the release of their new EP Welcome To The End of The World. The Dead Milkmen played their first farewell show at the Troc in 1994, and the famous Philly stage also provided the backdrop for their Hallow’s Eve show a few years ago. Fitting with the Halloween theme, watch a video of bandleader Rodney Anonymous’ cover of Blue Öyster Cult’s “Don’t Fear The Reaper” in Laurel Hill Cemetery. Find tickets and more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.
